I can't imagine that any time would not be a good time for baking. I've wanted to start baking during the holidays but my husband dislikes cookies!! Weirdo

I am definitely making doughnuts though!

My daughter is buying the complete dinner already cooked from Stop and Shop. I will make an apple pie for her family. I am also going to make a big dish of dressing. The last time she ordered this dinner, no one liked the dressing. She doesn't know I am making it though. I bought Turkey Stock and a turkey leg for the liquid for the dressing. I will also make some cookies. Her husband and son have a very large sweet tooth. I would like to make the Oreo Cookie cheesecake for my grandson, bu I think I would be pushing myself too hard. My days of baking for two or three days are over. Time for the younger generation to take over. Time for them to learn to bake.

I know that this thread is as cold as a fish, but I've started my Christmas baking, since we will be gone for awhile.

I like to give food as gifts, no surprise there, right?
This is a Chocolate Bailey's Irish Cream cake with toasted
Coconut on top. It went into the deep freeze and
will be mailed to it's lucky recipient later.
This cake tastes better days later so it works out perfect for mailing.

I'll be baking these cookies from the link Andy provided. They're tops on my cookie list that I've just started for the holidays.

We'll also do decorative sugar cookies that the grandkids can get involved in. Not sure of what else just yet.

Our Christmas cake is done and sleeping in the larder and tomorrow and Thursday we have a big cook-in with friends making more cakes, Christmas puddings and mincemeat.
Along the way we will have to make sure that the rum and brandy hasn't gone off since last year of course and someone has to lick out the bowls. Alas, that now falls to the kids unless they are out playing in the garden and miss the moment. Their loss and someone elses gain I suppose!!

I wouldn't fret too much about the kids. There day will come when they are old enough to join the older folks with the cooking. And then their kids will be out playing in the garden.

We don't like 'fruitcake fruit' either...not even the expensive stuff. My fruitcake is a fruit bread, really.... dark, spicy batter and add nuts, dried apricots, dates and our health food store sells dried pineapple and papaya that's sweet but not icky and they have a nice color. Maybe some currants or dried apples or dried canned peaches. And candied cranberries instead of cherries. Doused with White Christmas (rum and brandy).

Going to try and get motivated over Thanksgiving weekend and freeze some cookie dough.

Fruitcake

I'm a bit behind on the fruitcake game, but I made 12 mini-fruitcakes this year. Tonight, I emptied a pint of Applejack brandy on them. I definitely need more for the next go-around.
